The integration of renewable energy systems into design and architectural projects is a topic and prevalent theme that presents opportunities for innovative approaches. Since the process combines energetic, structural, design characteristics and also the context in which the project is inserted, there are important variables to be considered in a Building Integrated Photovoltaics(BIPV). The goal of this article is to classify them in order to support designers, architects and engineers closer by means of guidelines for good practices in BIPV design. The realization of this study is justified by the fact that there is a disinformation and a cultural thought that photovoltaic systems depreciate de project design, which characterizes the lack of incorporation of such elements.

In the last centuries, we have been presenting modification and destruction of natural resources. The establishments of Conservation Units (CU’s) have been approached as a way to minimize biodiversity losses. Recently, the relation between Conservation Units and human population that live in them is one of the biggest challenges in the CU’s management, as the imposing of new controlling mechanisms for their use. In this context, this article has as objective to present the Casulo Verde’s pilot project, having as its object of study the Serra do Tabuleiro’s State Park, located in Santa Catarina State, Brazil. Through a systemic approach of design management, the project aims to improve the community’s relationship surrounding the CU’s and the visiting experience for tourists. From design management techniques, it has been possible to understand the main problems of the Visitors Center of the Serra do Tabuleiro State Park, as well as identifying viable opportunities.
